As it evolved, this movement gradually brought to mind the annual last night of the summer proms at the Royal Albert Hall in London, where the standing promenaders, almost within baton distance, and wearing their hats and other paraphernalia, while bouncing/launching balloons etc, sing, hum and sway along to the music; great fun! This movement is somewhat �atonal� in nature and although a technical analysis will show that sections can be picked out here and there to be in particular keys, overall there seemed little to be gained in separating these out to ease sight reading, as the quantity of accidentals either way is about 50/50. The movement requires fast and furious finger work in places to show off the soloist�s tenacity and brilliance, ably supported by the orchestra�s sections. Unusually, there is an opportunity for audience participation, humming and swaying to a melody which appears about half way through (bar 451). The melody is passed around the orchestra as the movement continues, the horns having a perhaps unexpected �almost solo spot� which works well with the main theme. An mp3 is provided to provide a more realistic overall sound than midi, but this unfortunately contains brass and woodwind drop-outs in places.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.
